Filing an Injury Claim Due to Inadequate and Negligent Security
Inadequate and negligent security has led to numerous attacks and assaults
in Atlanta and throughout the state of Georgia. Victims of these attacks
may not realize that they have the right to obtain financial compensation for
personal injury. While criminal charges can ensure that the assailant is penalized, it
does not provide restitution.

adequate security and keeping the area safe.
These areas might include:
- Parking lots
- Shopping centers
- Hotels and motels
- Bars and Restaurants
- Train stations
- The workplace
- Apartment complexes
- Colleges, universities, and other schools
- Rehabilitation centers
We Are Here to Assist You with Your Claim
Filing a claim for inadequate security is a form of
premises liability, in that all property owners areas have the responsibility of maintaining
safety at all times. This responsibility can extend to something as simple
as ensuring the guardrails or handrails are safe, all the way up to, and
including, providing security cameras or employing guards to survey the area.
Some of the steps that property owners should take include:
- Hiring staff or security guards to patrol areas that are notorious for
- Providing adequate lighting in areas, such as blind spots, alleys, and
other possible dangerous spots
- Installing surveillance equipment around parking lots or other areas with
a high likelihood of criminal activity
- Building fences, gates, or adding walls to areas to block out possible criminals
